Abstract: Eighty-six young people, who were church-going newly married or engaged couples and their friends, viewed a video concerning childbirth, and presented their opinions about life, sex, and family planning. Then, they were shown a video concerning the Billings method, lectured on planned pregnancy, and answered a free-writing questionnaire about planned pregnancy and partnership. The contents of education and answers to the questionnaire were analyzed. Three concepts, i.e. "affection", "impression", and "coordination", were selected by the linguistic interactive categorical analysis, and whether "affection" and "impression" have led to "coordination" between the partners in the form of planned birth or not was evaluated. The subjects who wrote much about affection also wrote significantly more about impression. Although no significant correlation was observed between affection and coordination in major categories, significant correlations were observed between "protect" and "agreement in thought" and between "important" and "agreement in rhythm". In the category of "coordination", "agreement in thought" (81.4%) and "agreement in rhythm" (94.2%) were mentioned by many subjects, but "self-regulated" was mentioned by only 8.1%. Therefore, cooperation and agreement between the partners with love and responsibility were considered to be important for success in planned pregnancy.
